When tasked with planning an event, it's always good to be on trend and if possible ahead of the game in terms of choosing a theme and speakers.
Climate Change and Environment
Political shifts aside, the biggest threat we all face is climate change. With Brexit, Trump’s shenanigans, Putin’s posturing and everything else going on, it is regrettably pushed down the international agenda – but forward looking businesses are on the case.
Keynote speakers like the climate change expert Cara Augustenborg and environmentalist Duncan Stewart are both business-friendly and wonderfully powerful advocates. Cara will host an RTE documentary to launch Science Week in November and Duncan remains Ireland’s best known environmentalist, hosting RTE’s longest running environmental series, EcoEye.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion is no longer just a talked about topic, it's now firmly on companies agendas and becoming integral to our way of life. Companies benefit massively from fostering an inclusive work environment where diversity is embraced and celebrated in all its forms. When employees can be themselves at work and live their values everyday, they are empowered to reach their full potential . When people from different backgrounds with different points of view work together, they create the greatest value for a business, its clients and society. Speakers like Deborah Somorin, Brendan Courtney and Fatima Bhutto can bring a new perspective to your company’s next meeting.
